is the difference between tape slitting and converting?
They’re basically the same.
Slitting is the physical process you perform on a wider roll of tape to
convert the tape to smaller widths. For
example, a 60” wide roll of tape can be slit (converted) into thirty, 2” wide
of tape Jaco provides and for which we can provide slitting/conversion:
- Kapton Tape– Kapton tapes are made from Kapton polyimide
film with silicon adhesive. The material is amber colored having
temperature resistance as low as -269 degrees Celsius/-452 degrees Fahrenheit, and as high as 260 degrees Celsius/500
degrees Fahrenheit. Kapton tape is
commonly used in the horizontal solder leveling process.
- Pressure Sensitive Tapes – These are
adhesive tapes that stick with application pressure, without the
need for solvent, heat, or water for activation. The majority of tapes fall into this

- Aircraft Tapes – Aircraft (or
“speed”) tape is an aluminized adhesive tape used for
minor repairs on aircraft, and as a temporary repair material until a more
permanent repair can be carried out. It has an appearance similar to duct tape, with which it is so
- metimes mistaken, but its adhesive is capable of sticking on an airplane fuselage or wing at high speeds, hence the name. Jaco offers aircraft tapes from leading
suppliers such as 3M, Polyken, Patco, Ideal Tape, Dewal, Shurtape and many
more, all available for custom slitting.

“do-it-all” tape we’re all used to.
